This is one of those sites where people from around the world want to dive. It is an amazing experience, so long as the weather is not too rough many operators will go Sundays to dive this site. I typically use Amy Slates Amoray Dive resort which is amazing. The visibility is always great low currents and offers very nice... More

Pennekamp has protected waters so fish really thrives there. Saw monster lobsters too. We really love this place. It is worth putting up with the crowds.

This is a more shallow reef and good for snorkelers. Good amount of wild life. Several fingers of the reef are very accessible. This is where the Christ of the deep statue is located.

It was an amazing place to visit. I went with a large group of 24 people. I took my daughter who is nine years old and my co-worker took her family, ranging from ages 4 years old to 73 years old. We all had a great time. There were many beautiful fish and coral. The Christ Statue was amazing! I... More

Great place to snorkel and scuba diveing. Saw an Spoted Eagle Ray and many beautiful and colorful fish. We left from John Pennekamp State Park. The staff was very informative and knowledgeable about us the current weather forecast. Be aware of weather conditions, so you have a pleasant adventure. Great visibility and the shallow waves can make your experience unforgettable.

This was one of two destinations of a three hour dive tour on the Visibility out of John Pennekamp on the Visibility(see separate review). Captain Dan moored us ten feet from the Christ statute. He and his crew are incredible, most especially Dive Master Wayne. You really need a good operator to find the right spots and Captain Dan did.... More

Only thing to see is the Jesus statute. Not worth the time to tie up to the mooring. There are many more interesting sites.

A very nice reef but very crowded because all of the boats that you can go out for the day on go there....stay on the opposite side of the reef, away from the statue...that way you will see all type of fish, soft and hard corals, and it isn't busy.
